Aeron has always been sustainable, designed with less material for more performance. And now it's made with ocean-bound plastic. See how we added this plastic waste.

A pioneering design moves forward

Ergonomic to the core, Aeron was designed for a wide range of body types, thanks to the extensive research from designers Bill Stumpf and Don Chadwick nearly 30 years ago. Its launch was pioneering in the office furniture industry – and it still is, thanks to updated research and material innovation, including the addition of ocean-bound plastic to the body of the chair. We've always known Aeron is good for our bodies – now it’s just as good for our environment too.

Where comfort meets support

The Aeron Chair is the benchmark for ergonomic seating since its debut in 1994. Since then, Herman Miller has learned a lot about how to best support people – and their postures. Aeron offers smarter weight distribution through 8Z Pellicle, adjustable PostureFit SL for total spinal support, and balanced recline and natural movement thanks to Harmonic 2 Tilt.

Designed for the elements

Aeron is available in a palette of four meticulously curated material expressions centred on elements pulled from the earth. Onyx is a dramatic ultra-black shade intended to modernise Aeron. Graphite is a distinctive dark grey, with a classic textured finish. Carbon offers a balanced neutral that works equally well in warm and cool environments. Mineral is the lightest and illuminates Aeron's finer points, ideal for open floor plans and spaces. Each component of the chair was thoughtfully designed, creating a fundamentally harmonious colour palette.

Sustainable from the start

Aeron’s legacy of sustainability and innovation continues since its introduction nearly 30 years ago. It proved pioneering in both ergonomics and material innovation, without relying on the standard use of foam, fabric, or leather found in most office chairs at the time. It’s also our first product to receive the industry-leading Cradle to Cradle V3 Silver Level certification. Aeron is composed of more than 50 percent recycled material—and now, we’ve added ocean-bound plastic, diverting more than 150 metric tons of plastic from the ecosystem every year.*

A more inclusive chair

Aeron’s three sizes—A, B, and C—were precisely designed to welcome a wide range of body types. Most ergonomic chairs accommodate people in the fifth to 95th percentile, but we believe an even broader range of individuals deserve a chair that fits them: everything from the backrest height, to the seat width, to the tilt mechanism, all the way down to the size of the base. There’s an Aeron suited to nearly everyone, from the first to the 99th percentile.
